Auchentoshan 12yo
£42.50

This Auchentoshan 12yo expression replaced the old 10 year-old in 2008, when the range was totally revamped and has since been turning many heads. The 12yo is aged in both ex-bourbon and ex-oloroso sherry casks. 


Triple distilled then matured for over twelve years. Auchentoshan is a Lowland Single Malt Whisky that has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee, cereals, exotic fruits - tangerine & lime and a bit of nuttiness & vanilla. Delicious!


Description

Details

Founded by Irish refugees in 1825 on the outskirts of Glasgow, Auchentoshan is one of the last active distilleries in the Lowlands. In common with other Lowland (and Irish) whiskies, Auchentoshan malt whisky is distilled three times (as opposed to most Scottish malt whisky, which is distilled twice). This triple-distillation has the effect of softening the flavour and body of the end product.

Auchentoshan Distillery’s position as a long cherished landmark on the Glasgow horizon dates back to the time it was granted its distillery licence in 1823. Throughout its long history, the distillery, one of only a few remaining Lowland Malt Whisky Distilleries, has witnessed the development of Glasgow from its early industrial days, that saw its shipbuilding supremacy famed the world over, through to the modern and cosmopolitan Glasgow seen today.

Appreciated by connoisseurs for its smooth flavour and by those new to malt whisky for its lightness and accessibility, Auchentoshan Single Malt is one of only a few remaining Lowland malts. Even in this select company, Auchentoshan is unique; while others distil only twice, Auchentoshan Distillery continues the tradition of triple distillation.
